I was lucky enough in life to find the one thing I was meant to do and to have the means to pursue it. My name is Kelly Kennedy and I am the owner of All Buttoned Up Events. I live in Grand Rapids with my husband, two young children, and crazy boxer pup. We believe the planning process should be filled with fun, excitement and darn right enjoyable. This is my goal for every client to feel about their event and the relationship we create.
I was destined to be a wedding planner from birth. I was a flower girl three times, my favorite movie was "The Wedding Planner" and my favorite game was "Ken and Barbie get married!" I lived and breathed weddings and not much has changed. I've been with All Buttoned Up for four years and have dedicated myself to ensuring that my couples have the most enjoyable experience both planning and living their special day.
I have always loved helping plan parties or any event that I could when I was young. I never thought that I would be able to make a career out of it and spend my time doing what I love. I have been working in the wedding industry for six years now and going on my fourth year with All Buttoned Up! Being able to witness a couple's special day, help to make sure the details are perfect, and the event runs smoothly are the reasons why I fell in love with weddings.
Event planning was an unexpected career path that came into my life a few years ago, but now that I am in it, I could not imagine doing anything else. I would say that I thrive off of the organized chaos wedding days bring and I love seeing the designs of these events come to life. I have been with All Buttoned Up for 3 years now and have loved learning the ins and outs of the wedding industry thus far!
Just like our name implies, we care about the details and we will make sure none are missed and that everything is all buttoned up!
If you aren't having fun with planning your wedding, you are doing something wrong. We want this process to be a good time and we do that by working together and being a team.
From hunting down a "must have" decor item to the craziness of event days, we are always on the go.
